May 2011 - Natalie really likes this book. Its a very simple book featuring a train. They get aboard, drive up and down a hill, through a tunnel, and come home. Along the way they say hello to a few animals. Simple, but great for a young toddler.

March 2013 - William loves this book, too. The train is very appealing. Maisy and her friends are easy to recognize and likeable. William now loves all the Maisy books, but this was the first one.
